Sweden, (80th Birthday Silver Commemorative) 5 Kroner 1962

This Swedish silver commemorative 5 Kroner silver coin was issued in 1962 for King Gustaf VIs 80th birthday. You have the King on one side and Pallas Athena holding a shield and owl. The owl is a worldwide and ancient symbol of wisdom. We don’t know what happened but, the Swedish Mint melted 40% of the total mintage. So today, some 58 years later it is a rather difficult coin to find. The small group we have are in Extremely Fine condition with lots of lustre and rather attractive. Others might grade them higher, but Coincraft uses old fashioned grading. We have just 32 pieces in stock and they should go quickly.

United States of America, Quarter 1976 Clad Proof S

In 1976, the United States celebrated the bi-centennial of gaining freedom from…. the US! Yes, it was over two hundred years ago that the two nations split, fiscally but not emotionally. The US Mint made new designs for the 25c, 50c and $1 coins. We knew we had some of the 1976 Quarters or 25c pieces in Proof, the only problem was finding them? Well, 4-5 years later, here they are. We never lose anything, but we do misplace the odd coin or two. You have a drummer beating his drum with a flame in a circle behind. It is a one year design, Choice Proof coins, struck in cupronickel by the US Mint and finally available to you again!

Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?
